Sand For Walleyes in Fall?

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried the sand on the North end in the Fall for Walleyes and had any success? I personally have not even tried, but my curiousity is two fold. Number 1, I have a Walleye Whiffer map that suggests it. Number 2, after a few "interesting" experiences with low water and rocks in the last few weeks, it seems it would be easier and safer up there. Is this a viable strategy, or is it best to stay on the rocks?

Thanks,

JDM

I've never tried fishing the north sand in the fall, but I have done ok pulling rapalas sand on other areas of the lake. It's nice to fish because you normally don't have much competition, plus don't have to worry about getting snagged, probably not as many fish as the rocks though.

In my opinion, it's tough to beat "the sand bite". It has always treated me well.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
